Synopsis: Once, Miranda felt a little exposed…
Miranda Hill can’t believe her eyes—her cocky ex-boyfriend, pro-hockey player Dane Croft, is back in Bluebonnet, Texas, after all these years. He ditched her – and their little town – just as some rather shocking photos showed up on the internet for the whole town to see. Miranda wasn't so lucky. Stuck in Bluebonnet and left to fend for herself, she’s never really shaken the scandal — or his betrayal. After nine long years, he's back, and she has the chance to turn the tables on Dane…
It’s time she got even.
Former NHL hotshot playboy Dane Croft has returned home to open a survival training school on an old ranch, and reinvent himself. When his former high school girlfriend enrolls in his school, he has no idea that Miranda's plan is to get him in a compromising position—not the one he’s imagining, anyway. But soon Miranda realizes that to carry out her deviously sexy revenge, she'll have to get up close and personal with Dane all over again. Being a good girl got her nowhere for nine years, and now it's time to be a little naughty. But falling in love with the man that broke her heart was never part of the plan….
Review: I picked this book up when I learned from Twitter that Jessica Clare is also Jill Myles (love her Succubus books). It was well worth the read. The only problem I had with the book was it was a tad too predictable, in most cases. The ending was epic and great, though.
I enjoyed the dynamic between Miranda and Dane. I loved how the conflict was a tad more steamy than the usual conflict as well. The sensuality in this book is amazing, there are a lot of nice wooded outside sex scenes and they are all hot. That being said, being out in the woods and doing all that rolling around and only showering once...not too into that.
The ending was not predictable and it was so funny I was laughing out loud. I loved it. I hope Ms. Clare continued to write books in this genre. Oh, and there is a nice smooth set up for a couple more book in this series..so watch out for those.
